Here I am referring to all three currently released X Men films, which I’ve watched recently. It’s just a shame I was such a late convert, but I’ve never really been one to take much notice of crazes. I watched the new one first, and really liked it, but didn’t understand some parts of the plot, so then rented the other two.
These films really appealed to me. I love films and books with really intricate plots, and different story lines. Although there seems to be an abundance of ‘superhero’ films out there, I definitely think X Men are amongst the best.
These films have just the right mix of supernatural, sex, and action. They’re not all about blowing everything in sight up, nor are they simply about the mutants going around rescuing people. That’s what makes them so great, there are plenty of sub-plots to keep viewers interested.
I really don’t want to go into detail and ruin any of the films if you haven’t seen them, but rest assured if you like supernatural/sci-fi type stuff, you’ll love these, they’re much better than the likes of ‘Daredevil’ and similar. I’d recommend watching them in order, though, if you’re like me you’ll get frustrated if you don’t know the full story, and watching them in the right order will clear any confusion.
Even if you don’t like the films, though, there’s plenty of totty to keep you entertained for a couple of hours… namely Hugh Jackman with his lovely muscles :-p
